Couldn't they take something like a GTX 260 or GTX 285 core and use a small memory bandwidth and a small amount of video memory to make the card cheaper, but still have a ton of shader processors to fold like mad?
Is this something a vendor (EVGA......) could do? Do they get the cards with the complete PCB? Can they just get some graphics chips and then build the PCB and memory and such around it?
It might be a small market compared to how many people there are who fold, but lots of those people buy 4 or more cards at a time. Imagine a folding gpu with the same gpus as gtx295 but for like half the price... That would be very nice, I am sure it would catch on.
